ARPort uses your iPhone or iPad camera and the magic of Augmented Reality to let you see all the airports around you anywhere in the USA or its territories.
ARPort marks the closest 20 Airports in the USA within 100 nautical miles of your position. As you scan with the camera you see the airport tagged and identified where it actually is in the landscape outside.
Aim the target box just below an airport's tag to see its distance, bearing and Vertical Speed Required.
Tap the tag, or tap the target box, to see an airport's full name, field elevation and length of its longest runway.
Minimum Requirements: iPhone3S* or iPad2* or better running iOS 5.0 or higher and GPS. When flying you may need an Apple compatible external GPS such as BadElf or Dual X150. USA Data are included--no connection required in flight.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
* The early iPhones and iPad do not have the required built-in gyro.
What's New in Version 2.01
IOS 8 support.
ARPort App not working
Bought this app a few years ago. Cannot get it to work on my iPhone 6 or iPad. Update: Adjusted my allowed locations now works great.
